First off, this is a great resource. Thank you so much for making this information available.
In yesterday's discussion with my coworkers about the future of tablets, phones, and computers, the question came up: how does the horsepower in my pocket compare with my 5 year old laptop?
I came to your site and was happy to see Mobile Devices along with CPU benchmarks. But when I got into the details, I was confused by the column headers. The CPU tables have one column titled "Passmark CPU Mark" while the Mobile Devices has two: "PassMark" and "CPUMark".
Case in point:
Is it possible to do a relative compare between the two? Would it be right to say the phone is 39% faster (1604 / 1154) or 3.3 times as fast (3821 / 1154)?
Intel Core2 Duo T7300 @ 2.00GHz
- Passmark CPU Mark = 1,154
Samsung Galaxy S II (GT-I9100G)
- PassMark = 1,604
- CPUMark = 3,821
Please don't take time to explain something that is already documented in a FAQ. All I need is a pointer.
Thanks for taking time to answer this.
